Fedora Digital Prize

As of 2019 and in keeping with our commitment to fostering innovation + creativity in the performing arts film industry, the IMZ International Music + Media Centre joins forces with Fedora, the platform aiming at nurturing European innovation + creativity and at increasing the reach of opera + ballet.

With the Fedora Digital Prize we advocate new ways of artistic expression and access to opera + ballet through digital innovation. Furthermore, the goal is to stimulate new collaborative approaches through digital innovation across different media. With the IMZ taking part in the competition + judging process as Expert Partner, the Fedora Digital Prize will fund the winning project with 50.000€ with the support of project partner Kearny. Additionally, the 4 final nominees will engage in a 2-month crowdfunding campaign.

The call is for innovative + interdisciplinary digital opera + ballet projects advancing artistic creativity on and beyond the stage – native digital, digital only projects as well as combinations with some element of performance or live experience are within the scope of the call.


The shortlist will be announced on 3 Feb, and the public voting will begin. The IMZ along with the expert jury will choose the nominees, who will be announced on 3 April.
